One More Setting I did

And the problem Disappeared.

How I came to this Non Logical solution ?

I was desperate and started checking each and every setting
in which first i Took Windows as my first try in which
i tried in following order
WIN95, Win98, ..... i reached to WINXP and it worked.

Can somebody suggest me what is Happening
when wine is configured to emulate WINXP ?

Thanks & best Regards.
